Salem Witch Trials and Hangings

These didn’t take place in Maine, but Maine was part of Massachusetts at the time, and they did influence certain happenings here. This is a “nice” chronology of events, with some hangings taking place on today’s date 319 years ago. http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/salem/asal_ch.htm

I believe I have witch related relatives in my genealogy – do you? Even testifying counts!

    I don’t think I have any witches in my history, but I just wrote a short blog post about Maine that you might find interesting. I make a reference, as you did, to the fact that it was a part of Massachusetts Colony originally. My blogs are about how our states got their quirky shapes, and I found Maine interesting because at first glance it appears to be tacked on to the tip of the United States.
